between most u.s. states that show a large expansion of mortgage credit than those that secretly had large mortgage delinquencies, a link between housing booms and bustss in the u.s. that coincided with financial leverage. they also had the highest leverage meaning the households herbart average ratios. how to think about preventing real-estate booms, via idea that we would like to prevent those and the policy areas that we think about monetary policy with the u. s presentation and argued the underlying conference and government policies. fixing monetary policies to deal with an isolated boom may be too costly because there are some things that hit the entire economy rather events specific sectors. something to keep in mind before using it. and something that was emphasized especially in the latin american crisis but the best size is to think of real space. many countries including the u.s. are favorites of equity with policies in place with mortgage and the number of countries with policies in place, something to think about or how to do with these measures. at the same time, that was one

of time has passed. meanwhile, several other u.s. cities and counties and states decided to follow the national academy of sciences. the national academy of sciences had recommended a couple of years ago that city police department and the crime lab's move into an independent status. those cities are seriously considering or have moved to an independent status of crime labs in washington, d.c., houston, and the state of north carolina. i continue to believe that crime lab issues require strong consideration in san francisco to make sure the integrity of our crime lab is not further compromised here this ordinance asks the controller to pursue this. the rest i will submit. supervisor campos: thank you, colleagues. i have a couple of items. the first is a hearing request that the hearing be held at the government audits and oversight committee on the controller's city services auditors review of the sfmta work orders for the year 2010-2011. as many of you know, the mta presently spends about $60 million in the work order services provided on behalf of the mta by other city agencies,
